Peter Fury: No Price fight at Anfield, world title this year for Tyson!

Phil Jay 09/01/2013

WBC contender Tyson Fury will not entertain any advances from Frank Maloney to make a potential British heavyweight title clash with current champion David Price, according to trainer and uncle Peter Fury.

Maloney made his plans for a £1million domestic super-fight at Liverpool’s Anfield Stadium or in London public earlier today and Fury has now made his feelings on the offer plain as day as he spoke to WBN.

“First of all Anfield is a no and one million means nothing to us,” Fury told World Boxing News.

“As I have said before, we will take Price on when he’s achieved where Tyson is now. We are going for title this year and that is our focus.

“Price is nowhere near the level that Tyson has reached and as far as I am concerned, Maloney needs to stop using his own fighter for PR off Tyson’s back when he knows full well the fight’s not happening and in making these offers is fooling the fans with his nonsense.

“Maloney waves money in public with a distasteful tact without realising that not every one jumps for a pound like some we could mention!”

Big-hitting Price, 29, has also put his blueprint for a world title shot out in the open recently too in an interview with BBC Sport and hopes to challenge one of the champions in the top division within his next five fights.

Whether that title holder is Tyson Fury only time will tell.
